Baseboard heat downstairs copper pipes leak
Tblazejowski

My downstairs has baseboard heat with copper pipes that run along the foundation. Water pressure was dropping and water usage skyrocketed. We shut off that zone and water usage returned to normal. It seems like a leak in the pipes. I do not want to tear apart the house or foundation so i was wondering if something can be sent through the inside of the copper pipes to stop any leak without ripping apart the house.

There are companys that reline pipes in place.
I don't know the cost but in many restorations i have been on the pipes are relined so Historical walls can remain.
Check your local plumbing supply house.
